Detailed Training Log – Week 5

Here are the stats from my run this week and from wearing my heart rate monitor to ultimate (will keep this up…)

Tuesday
App Used: ismoothrun
Distance: 6 km
Time: 40:43
Average Pace: 6:47/km
Average Cadence: 102 (too low!)
Feeling:

Awesome. Initially didn’t want to run, but started the hill run and felt really strong. Great run!

Advantage of an out-and-back hill run that starts uphill – negative splits!

Thursday
Equipment Used: Polar F7 Heart Rate monitor
Activity: Ultimate
Time: 2hr 15min
Average Heart Rate: 123 bpm
Maximum Heart Rate: 179 bpm
Feeling:

Awesome. I love ultimate.

Friday
Activity: Run
Time: 23:35
KM 0-1: 6:23 (outside)
KM 1-3: 17:12 bpm (treadmill – 2% incline)
Feeling:

Run from hell. Ran 1km outside, am recovering from an eye sunburn and forgot my sunglasses and hat (living in a temperate rainforest, it’s normally not sunny). Then ran back to the fitness centre, hopped on a treadmill to finish 2 more kms at 2% incline. Felt tired, sore and frustrated.

Saturday
Activity: Strength train
Hang Clean: 30kg (66lbs) x 6 reps x 2 sets, 32.5 kgs (72lbs) x 6 reps x 2 sets
Assisted Chin ups : 35lbs assistance, 3 reps x 5 sets
Back squat (to bench): 95 lbs x 6 reps x 3 sets, 85 lbs x 6 reps x 2 sets (focus here was on increasing depth, squatting to a bench with good technique)
Feeling:

Awesome! Love lifting, love the movements. Focused on keeping my core strong and using good technique on each lift.
